WVU Club Recognized at Convention
Golden Key claims award for projects
WVU's chapter of the Golden Key International Honor Society
recognized for its outstanding community and academic projects during a
regional convention last month in New York.
The chapter was the only club to claim two awards: the Best Community
Service Project and Best Academic Service Project.
It also won the Best Community Service Project for helping with the
student United Way campaign and "Rocking on the Riverfront" concert.
The concert was staged in October during Homecoming Week and raised
almost $3,000 for United Way agencies.
The Best Academic Service Project recognized the WVU chapter for
organizing Graduate and Professional School Informational Month in
February. The chapter scheduled Kaplan test drives for students to take
practice graduate entry exams. The event also included a graduate and
